Good morning all - this Tuesday the scale saw 224.8. I am pleased to show a loss this week, after indulging, but I'm having a hard time, as I was a pound less than that a week ago, and I feel like I am working so hard. However, I did eat my weight in beef on Sunday, but I don't think I can show the effects of that so soon. I know the scale is only one way to measure, so I think I'll stop my pity party and beating myself up.
Last night I really struggled with staying out of the kitchen. I have been journaling seriously for a couple of days now, (good girl!) and I think I found myself feeling deprived. I know myself that when I write it down, it makes such a difference in how closely I watch what I eat. And why does hummus have so many calories? Arrgh! I'm determined to stick with my 1500 calorie plan, for one more week, and see if I get more of the results I am looking for. In good news, I did all my work outs this week, and even did Mountain Climbers of my own volition. I am a crazy woman.
I have some lovely recipes to share. For my lunch this week, I made Elise's Spinach and Orzo salad, but I substituted bulgur wheat instead of orzo pasta. More fiber, and more nutrition, and I won't get that 3 pm sleepy pasta head. With hummus and baby carrots on the side. I'm experimenting with a new veggie, and I'll post the recipe this week.
Hope everyone else is having a great week!
